"Pop-pop, Thinking of you today and I hope you are surrounded by things that make you smile up in heaven. Please continue to look over us. You are missed <3
Love your granddaughter,
I will always treasure the memories of all the wonderful times we had with you in Florida. We would visit you and Grandma there every year at Christmas. You loved to help Mom and Dad keep Robin, Peter and I entertained. I will never forget how much you laughed at all the funny stories Peter told you about our family. You also encouraged us pursue our dreams and enjoy wherever life takes us.
I love you and miss you. "May heaven rest you now."
Your Niece/God daughter,
Wow the impact you had on my life. I'm so blessed to have had the times I have had with you, from grocery shopping together every Sunday, to you waiting for me at the bus stop and even waiting on the ice cream man to come by the house. I will never forget the picnics we use to have in the front yard, the pictures we would take playing around all the time, you telling me I'm going to be Miss. America, and letting me sit in your room and sing to you no matter how horrible it was you told me how great I did. From your dirty "white horse fell in the mud" jokes to your made up Chinese faces you always put a smile on my face. For seven years every morning I would go to your room first thing and tell you good morning and at night I would be sure to go and tell you good night. You will forever be in my heart, I love you so much and I know you're no longer suffering.

Forever and Ever your granddaughter,
"I'll miss Edgar's handsome smile and the twinkle in his eyes each Tuesday when we spoke . A very special veteran that allowed us to stay free. May God hold him tightly in His arms and give peace to his family.
I will miss you very much you will also be in my heart. You are no longer suffering. I will always remember the times we had together.
Glad you got to be in my family's life the seven years you lived with us.I love you
Lori Ann (Leone) Piper"
"That's my Dad! May he rest in peace - no pain or discomfort- and surrounded anything that makes him smile like this..chocolate mints, for one. I love you,Daddy...and you will be missed so dearly. Xxx"
